One of the toughest things to do in Monster Hunter World: Iceborne is a face a monster you’ve never seen when you have no idea what elements and ailments make up its weakness. This is the struggle of many players jumping into Iceborne today, so we’re here to help.
Tigerx has one major weakness, but a few others to fall back on for players with a limited weapon selection. Tigerx is weak to the following elements and ailments:
- Fire: 0
- Water: 1
- Thunder: 3
- Ice: 1
- Dragon: 2
- Poison: 2
- Sleep: 2
- Paralysis: 2
- Blast: 2
- Stun: 2
Looking at that list, the higher the number the better, making Thunder the ideal element to use against Tigerx in a fight. If you don’t own a weapon with Thunder, opt instead for something from the ailment list since they all deliver the same result in terms of damage.
To take things a step further, players should be targeting the head, legs, and tail of Tigerx, as those are the points that can be broken. Well, the tail can be severed, which is also recommended to stop the tail attacks that most monsters with a large tail possess.
To make the most out of Monster Hunter World: Iceborne, players should have an assortment of different weapons with all ailments and elements. It’s important to always have the right tool for the job. If you don’t, consider going to the Smithy and browsing the weapon tree, then selecting some weapons to aim for. Grind out a few good options before taking on Iceborne’s more formidable foes.
